At the Electrochemical Society Conference this fall, Xtalic scientists, Dr. Jane Freydina and Dr. Josh Abbott, have described the details of reduction-oxidation reactions in ionic liquid plating. Ionic liquids can be used to electrodeposit metals that are otherwise difficult to plate in the presence of water. Dr. Freydina and Dr. Abbott have provide insight into [...]
Xtalic Gains Traction with Luna® USB: The Immersion Corrosion Solution For Waterproof Smartphone USB-C Connectors
Nanostructured metal alloys outperform traditional metals XTALIC introduced LUNA® USB earlier this year as a newly engineered connector plating technology that uses Xtalic nanostructured metal alloys to provide USB-C connectors with superior immersion corrosion protection. Today the Xtalic team is accelerating many key smartphone OEM qualification programs as well as the manufacturing footprint in Asia [...]
Technology thought-leaders will gather in Washington, D.C. this week to take a deep dive into the cutting edge materials science that is used to improve fuel economy in automobiles. Xtalic will present our work entitled High-Strength Electroformed Nanostructured Aluminum for Lightweight Automotive Applications. This work is part of a $5M research award from the United [...]
Xtalic will showcase existing and developing technologies at the 27th AeroMat Conference and Exposition. During this world leading aerospace materials conference, we will present the fundamental technology on which the Xtalic product portfolio is based. Conference attendees will see some of our new manufacturing approaches, which enable super-lightweight materials. Rose Roy, Materials Engineer at Xtalic, [...]
We are pleased that nanostructured metal alloys have caught the interest and attention of Dr. Bob Mroczkowski, one of the leading experts in connector design and performance.
Nanostructured metal alloys outperform traditional metals LUNA® USB is a newly engineered connector plating technology that uses Xtalic nanostructured metal alloys to provide USB-C connectors with superior corrosion protection. A complete waterproofing solution for any mobile device requires a high level of corrosion resistance on the connector contacts. Exposure of the plug or the mobile [...]
Higher performing, lower cost replacement for gold on electrical contact surfaces Xtalic is presenting LUNA®, a new nanostructured metal alloy that outperforms gold as a contact finish on connectors to deliver significant savings. LUNA meets all critical performance standards for a contact finish, including EIA 364 and other standards, and significantly outperforms gold in challenging [...]
